Mobile Billboard Company Moves Client Advertising to The Streets

nbcsandiego | March 04, 2020

San Diego-based LED Truck Media offers clients a chance to run images and videos with sounds on LED screens on each side of a truck, and a still image on the back, all powered by a generator located inside the truck When Julie De Souza and her husband and business partner Jonnathan Trilleras decided to relocate their LED Truck Media company from Miami, Florida, to San Diego (with a short stint in Los Angeles in between) late last year, the driver  pun intended  was to penetrate a market that didn’t currently have a significant mobile billboards industry. As a result, LED Truck Media, founded in 2018 and headquartered in Kensington, has grown its business by 37% since October, and De Souza predicts revenue will increase by 45% by end of year.
